    You are in luck. The 3G baseband crack was released today! It's code named yellowsn0w and although it's in its infancy many users are reporting positive results. Thus you should be able to use any sim card / operator with a 3G going forward.

    You can buy it from AT&T, cancel the contract within three days, pay the early termination fee, one months bill and what ever other charges and taxes there are. Cant remember all the details but you end up paying just over $500. Same price as the original iphone used to be.

    Not trying to be funny, but I keep seeing questions similar to this all over the Internet, and every time I see it I just want to reply "Isn't that an iPod Touch"? (Give or take a few minor differences and inconveniences - but these are choices we make as to how much or how little we want to spend)

    He is asking WHERE to get one, not how to do it.
